GOP Candidate Vows To Return To Paper-Ballots: 'This Is Going To Be The TOP Of My Agenda'
They have really done a miserable job executing ballot counts. Arizona Kari Lake offered some insight as to why they're taking so long but it still leaves many people calling for a return to normal. Lake says she is sure she will 'blow liberal mind' when results finally come in from her state and she's dubbed the victor.
At this point, her state is still working through some 650,000 ballots with a small margin between Lake and her opponent Katie Hobbs. believe this?" she said.
Arizona has some 275,00 mail-in ballots that were hand delivered by voters on election day because no one trusts the 'system'. Lake asserted that we have to return to normal.
"[Those] are people who brought their mail-in ballots to the polls on Election Day because they don't trust the mail and they don't trust the drop boxes," she said.
"We're only down by a few thousand votes right now. When those votes come in, I think we're going to see a lot of liberal minds kind of blowing up."
Lake criticized Maricopa County Recorder Stephen Richer and Hobbs for mishandling the election counting process. In remarks reported by Phoenix media, Richer defended Maricopa's election operations, explaining that the 275,000 early ballots dwarfed the 170,000 early ballots the county received during the 2020 presidential election.
"Last night, we were down 15 points, and now we're down [less than a point]," Lake later said. "When I started voting in 1988, you showed up on election day… and you knew who won the election before you went to bed."
Lake said the 2000 election was the start of annual electoral chaos, when the Bush-Gore race became forever associated with paper-ballot "hanging chads" and the "Brooks Brothers Riot" demonstration at Miami canvassing headquarters that was associated with political figures like GOP consultant Roger Stone.
"I want all Democrats, Independents and Republicans to trust in the system. And when I win … this is going to be top of my agenda," Lake said, calling on the return of machine-less voting and paper ballots.
